iMessage without worries...how?

Anyone found a fix for this? So far it’s just my laptop that I cannot sign into, my desktop is fine.

MacBookPro11,1 smbios

Maybe they are blacklisting old devices registering with new serials?

Edit

Now my desktop was signed out and cannot sign back in, once again nothing changed.

¿Alguien encontró una solución para esto? Hasta ahora, es solo mi computadora portátil en la que no puedo iniciar sesión, mi computadora de escritorio está bien.

MacBookPro 11,1 smbios

¿Tal vez están en la lista negra de dispositivos antiguos que se están registrando con nuevas publicaciones seriadas?

Ahora mi escritorio se cerró y no puedo volver a iniciar sesión, una vez más, nada cambió.

First you should enter your Apple account and see the devices that are registered, if you are not using them you should delete them.

https://appleid.apple.com/#!&page=signin

 

In my case I have these and all are active FT / IM ok.

You could also reset your password, this could help remove blockages from Apple for your account.

 

Then start a clean installation of the OS with a new profile SMbios (ROM, MLB, smUUID and Custom UUID). Do not forget to check your serial number with the apple servers.

Following these steps I have been successful in installations and reinstallations of the Apple OS. If you wish I could build a SMbios for you, I would only add the configuration that corresponds to your Hardware.

I’ve tried a fresh install, iMessage Fixer, new smbios and now nothing seems to want to work again. It’s just puzzling because it was working then one day bam I was automatically signed out and cannot sign back in.

Does anyone affected by this issue know which clover revision it started at? I always update my clover so I’m unsure which revision I was using. Or is it on apples side?

On my hacks (in signature) i use the same Clvoer revision. On 10.13.6 imessage is not working. On 10.14 it's fine. So i guess it's on Apple's side.

I just reinstalled from mojave to High Sierra and everything remains the same.

 

Some data could be giving you problems with the activation of IM / FT. Have you checked that your data is persistent after the restart of your system? Could you share your SMbios to have a look?

I will share more information when I can. I usually have “from smbios” selected not “from system”. Could that be the issue? It was working with “from smbios” previously until now.

Compartiré más información cuando pueda. Por lo general, he seleccionado "from smbios", no "from system". ¿Podría ese ser el problema? Estaba trabajando con "desde smbios" anteriormente hasta ahora.

test with your real system data, restart and see if they are persistent. Then you should delete the devices that appear in your Apple account.

You could generate your own config.plist, following this.

Remember that your network parameters should look like in the image, Ethernet En0 ,,, blah blah

Hey guys, how are you?

 

@MaLd0n and I was doing some tests with iMessage.

And for most impossible that it seems, now we can use it without worries with MLB, ROM and specific SN. Look...:frantics:

But who can made this possible?

  • Clover
  • VirtualSMC
  • Apple??

 

 I just updated the config.plist with the latest clover configurator and the Apple ID that I haven't been able to activate since now works just fine!

In RT Variables do you have “from smbios” or “from system” selected?

I don't think it's related to Clover Configurator. As a matter of fact, if you open config.plist with Xcode, you can't find that option.

By the way, i use "from Smbios" and it still works.

Anyone know how to find the MLB/ROM data in a Macbook Pro bios chip dump. I have a dead MBP logic board and removed the bios chip and read it with a chip programer but have no idea how to find the data I need or if the dump even contains that data. Looks like the serial number at the last when opened in hex editor.

Lol, finally got it to work after 1000 tries and 5 different SMBIOS last 2 weeks. I had iMessages working prior to that and suddenly it stopped. Turns out I forgot to inject the Ethernet kext LOL.

 

So, if you don't have an Ethernet Card in System info, that's probably the reason it doesn't work..

I had iMessages working for a while with this thread but then both my hacks stopped having working iMessage. I’ve tried everything. Both have Ethernet and Ethernet kexts injected, desktop has 2 ports both have the appropriate kext, have tried new serials etc without any luck, nvram is working.

I don't know if serials matter. I'm using unrecognised MacPro serial right now and it works. It used to work with an Mac mini serial before that (never checked the Mac mini serial number).

 

I don't know which particular thing got iMessage working, but I did do the following sometimes in the past:

- added real credit card to account

- registered free developer account to get the beta updates

 

All the numbers in the macPro SMBIOS right now are generated by CloverConfigurator. I didn't do anything special, besides fixing the ethernet kext issue.

      Clover r5051 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.15 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r5051 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.5k-5051-X64.iso by double clicking on it.
      2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal
      sudo diskutil mount disk0s1   3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition
      4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file
      5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu.
       
      Substitute your own unique and valid MLB and ROM variables in the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist (Rt Variables section) to activate iMessage/Facetime on your VM.

      Hello all!
       
      I have successfully got my Hackbook online, using USB tethering. Thanks to Herve (can't use special characters, you know who you are!), I also got my audio working.
       
      I am very much ready to begin setting up iCloud, the App Store, and iMessage/FaceTime. Those services (especially the latter two) are what got me into hackintoshing.
       
      Problem: The listed services fail to sign me in. iCloud sign in from System Preferences returns "Unable to sign in because of a problem communicating with iCloud."
      FaceTime returns a registration process fail, the App Store reports that my computer can't be verified, and iMessage reports an activation error. However, iTunes works, except no Apple Music.
       
      HARDWARE:
      Intel Core i7-2630QM
      GeForce GT 525M (using integrated HD 3000 graphics instead)
      Custom Dell L502X A12 BIOS w/ UEFI support
       
      SOFTWARE:
      OS X Mavericks 10.9.5
      AppleALC + VoodooHDA for audio
      VoodooPS2Controller (trackpad kext likes to cause KP during boot, sometimes)
       
      Any possible fixes for this?
      Thanks in Advance!

      iMessage Fixer is an application which helps you to completely reset your iMessage and FaceTime settings. This app will remove all the preferences related to iMessage and iCloud account from your system and it will also remove the NetworkInterface preferences from your system, so please use with caution. If you are having activation issues with iMessage, this application is not the answer but if you already activated iMessage on your Mac or Hack and the Messages is acting up you can use this app to fix it.
       
      Your iMessage history will be erased and you might need to sing back in in iMessage and FaceTime.
       
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      This is a quick guide on how to fix iMessage/Messages and FaceTime:
      There are other issues that can result in imessage/Messages and FaceTime not working properly like using a blacklisted Serial Number or MLB or SmUUID or simply an unactivated AppleID. If that's the case you need to use Clover Configurator 5.2.0.1 (or newer version) to rebuild your SMBIOS data with the most updated details like shown in the picture below:
       

       
      All you have to do is to select the SMBIOS section and then form the SMBIOS selector choose the most compatible SMBIOS with your hardware:
       

       
      Then you need to select the RtVariable section to generate the MLB based on your SMBIOS data and then just click the Generate button next to ROM to automatically generate the MLB and ROM ID based on your SMBIOS and then copy/paste the MLB from the newly generated info into the MLB box next to the ROM filed. Save your new config.plist
       

       
      Once you did the steps above and save the config, close Clover Configurator and the run the iMessage Fixer app and then reboot the computer, once macOS is loaded, login into iMessage or Messages using your AppleID and hopefully you can activate your iMessage and FaceTime.

      Important Note:
      If you already signed in AppStore or iCloud using your current config.plist you might need to remove that device from iCloud in order to prevent the Account Lock Up by Apple because once you change the Serial Number, MLB and SmUUID Apple's server will lock your account in order to protect your data and you need to rest the password for your AppleID.

      I hope you find this helpful.
      Cheers

      i tried to fix it by following several guide but it didn't worked out.

      It shows an error with a code to contact customer care.
